Though viewers have yet to set their eyes on the second season of Netflix's hit series House of Cards, they need not fear Frank Underwood-deprivation once they've binged. According to Michael O'Connell of The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix confirmed that the series would be back for a third go around, with production getting underway shortly.
This news would have normally not been surprising for such a hot property, but there had been rumor mongering and speculation that the show would only do two seasons. Back in October, executive producer Rick Cleveland said that "‘House of Cards’ is only going to go a second season and I think that’s it." The show was originally a two-season commitment. Later that month, however, Netflix CCO told an audience that the studio's "intent is that the show keep going for sure." At the end of last month, when interviewed by the Wall Street Journal's Rachel Dodes, star Kevin Spacey punted on the question of a third season. As for whether it was something he'd "want to do," he said: "we'll see."
Now it seems that the political machinations and monologues will continue, thank goodness.
